MHN Wrap: Habs Fans Heard In Heaven; Should Hughes Get Dubois?



Montreal Canadiens

Should the Montreal Canadiens try and acquire Quebec native and Winnipeg Jets center Pierre-Luc Dubois?

Vegas Golden Knights goalie Robin Lehner is done for the season.

Godspeed Guy Lafleur.

Now onto the MHN Canadiens Wrap:

Montreal Canadiens

For obvious reasons, the Montreal Canadiens are once again being linked to Winnipeg Jets center and Quebec native Pierre-Luc Dubois. My partner-in-scribe at Montreal Hockey Now, Marco D’Amico, thinks the Habs should pass on acquiring Dubois.

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price is a nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy.

Marco was at the Bell Centre for a moment for the ages and really brought to life what he experienced in this column about how the Montreal Canadiens once again nailed it with their tribute to Guy Lafleur. Lafleur had to have heard his fans up in heaven!

In case you live in a cave and you missed the tribute to Guy Lafleur, watch this and I’ll buy you a drink if you’re not choked up after!



National Hockey Now

BOS: The legend of Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron is growing and growing across the NHL; why is not doing the same in Boston?

NYI: A week after they lost arguably their most popular alumni member in Mike Bossy, the New York Islanders invited their alumni back to reunite and reminisce.

Pitt: I have to agree with Dan Kingerski from Pittsburgh Hockey Now and his assessment of the TNT NHL broadcasts lately. They have been bar far, way better than ESPN/ABC, but lately it’s more about the analysts and not the game.

Philly: Philadelphia Flyers center Kevin Hayes has been through a year from hell and he’s definitely getting a top 3 vote from yours truly!

Wash: Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Florida: The Florida Panthers will be without forward Ryan Lomberg for Tuesday’s game against the Boston Bruins as he was suspended by the NHL for instigating a fight with Tampa Bay’s Erik Cernak on Sunday night. Panthers head coach Andrew Brunette was fined $10,000 for getting a game misconduct during the aftermath of the Lomberg scuffle.

Colorado: As he tries to get his team ready for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Colorado Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar is not holding back when he addresses what needs to happen to the media.

Vegas: Just brutal news out of Las Vegas. After Vegas Golden Knights head coach denied multiple reports that goalie Robin Lehner would have season-ending shoulder surgery, the team has now confirmed the rumors to be true. Note to those keyboard warriors who have been harassing Lehner as he tried to play through this injury: How’s that crow taste?

San Jose: How fast will San Jose Sharks rookie Thomas Bordeleau take it to the next level?

Vancouver: The Vancouver Canucks are stepping up against ALS for one of their own.

Calgary: Calgary Flames forward Elias Lindholm finally reached the 40-goal plateau.


United States President Joe Biden did not acknowledge the Russian Tampa Bay Lightning players that helped them win back-to-back Stanley Cups Monday as Biden continues to deal with the war In Ukraine.

Hobey Baker Award winner Dryden McKay has been signed by the Toronto Marlies, the AHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Before I let you go here, I just want to leave this amazing rendition of The Parting Glass by the High Kings for Guy Lafleur. I had the pleasure of basically being a fly on the wall one night in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire back in 2009, with Lafleur and my mentor, the late Russ Conway as they traded hockey and life stories. RIP Guy and Russ. Merci!

‘So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate’er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all’

I’d rather keep what would be given up than get Dubois
